Catalinbread Formula 5F6 – Tweed con spinta

Si parlava di Catalinbread un attimo fa con Vigilius in un altro topic e guarda cosa scopro .. un nuovo pedale marcato “Il pane di Catalin”!!

 

 

 

 

Overdrive come se piovessero in casa Catalinbread, si unisce al già nutrito corpo overdrive della casa :

Questa è una simulazione del mio tanto amato tweed !!

catalinbread 5f6

Il pedale simula il tweed Bassman  :sbavv: rendendo possibile ricreare le sonorità ( sarà vero ? ) dello storico ampli .

Alti, Medi, Bassi, Volume, Gain ; questi i controlli del pedale per la massima flessibilità. Devo dire che rispetto ad un unico pot del tono, ho apprezzato molto. Alla Catalnbread dicono poi che lo schema del Bassman è stato quell oche ha maggiormente influenzato i produttori di tutto il mondo, sfidano perfino a verificare Vox e Marshall, che a quanto pare, hanno pescato da questo ampli .. Davvero ? ??? Non lo sapevo .

Al suo interno il pedale nascond euno switch per passare dalla modalità “standard” a quella “super lead”, un turbo di gain !

True Bypass ? Sì ! .  :yeepy:

Dicono di lui ( alla Catalinbread ):

When a tweed Bassman is set at low to medium volumes, you get a sparkling, harmonically rich tone. Turned up a bit more and it delivers that famous on-edge-of-breakup character that is responsive to your picking attack, a sound so craved by guitarists. Play a ringing open chord and you’ll be rewarded with lush harmonic swirl. And then crank the volume up to 12 and you’ll get a thick, creamy, meaty crunch – the original genesis for all heavy guitar sounds to come. And if you hit it really hard, you’re rewarded with a slight compression, a slight sag in the response, that feels so good to play. The tweed Bassman is so touch-sensitive and responds beautifully across the frequency spectrum. If you play a Strat, this is a match made in heaven. Gibson style guitars sound great too and will overdrive the preamp sooner and you’ll start to recognize those tones you heard on famous records.

And with the Formula 5F6 you’ll get that entire range of response! It does that quick compression on the initial attack that ‘exhales’ quickly into a wide clean with lots of glassy chime on top and a tight full low end.

But wait, there’s more! After we got the Formula 5F6 circuit dialed in to reproduce the beautiful vintage tweed Bassman response, we asked: “Hey what if we supercharged and gained this thing up but pretended we had never heard of a Marshall?” Some tweaking to the gain structure and tone circuit and boom! we got a great new voicing – much higher gain, a bright attack, and as full as you want it. It was so cool we decided to build it into the pedal, accessible through an internal switch.

The Formula 5F6 lends itself to almost any musical style, from the classic Strat – Bassman blues tones of Buddy Guy and Otis Rush to artists like Jimmie and Stevie Ray Vaughn, Robbie Robertson, Robben Ford, all the way to heavier styles by stacking boost, overdrive, or fuzz pedals into it. Don’t worry, the Formula 5F6 won’t just make you play old music! It will take you where your imagination takes you!”
